While the Los Angeles Lakers have still not been able to announce the identity of Frank Vogel’s successor, LeBron James has a specific candidate in mind.

Two years after the coronation of Los Angeles Lakers in the Orlando bubble, which allowed LeBron James to win the fourth NBA championship ring of his long career, Frank Vogel was thanked at the end of the regular season by the front office of the Lakers due to the failure of Angelinos to reach the Play-Offs. To replace him, several names have been circulating for several weeks in the press. Nevertheless, among the three candidates monitored by Rob Pelinka, the general manager of the Los Angeles Lakers could ultimately favor the little surprise on his list, namely Darwin Hama profile appreciated by a certain LeBron James.

Darvin Ham, « le candidat de LeBron » ?

“Darvin Ham, 48, has the shortest CV of the last three candidates, and no head coaching experience. He began his career as an assistant with the Lakers in 2011, then spent 5 years in Atlanta with Mike Budenholzer, whom he also followed in Milwaukee thereafter. He’s a risk, but the Celtics are in the conference finals with rookie coach Ime Udoka. The Lakers could be tempted because Ham knows the franchise and his personality is not so easily forgotten. He brings a lot of energy to training. He is also the best candidate since veterans LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook need a coach they understand and identify with. Moreover, an executive simply said: “he is LeBron’s candidate”. wrote Eric Pincusjournalist of Bleacher Reportin his last article which was relayed by Let’s talk-Basketball this Saturday night. It remains to be seen whether the wish to LeBron James will be respected for the appointment of the successor of Frank Vogel.
